No prior knowledge is required! The art in this class is based on sketches of the Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an, China. The students will learn about these statues and their significance as art and artifacts, but they will also learn about the military ranks of that time ( 221-206 BCE) and the features of the Qin Dynasty. Along the way, they will read letters "from" people of that time period (historical and fictional) and express their creativity through a variety of art activities. We will...
American Common Core Standards: CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.4.1 Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.4.3 Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.4.4 Determine the meaning of general academic and domain-specific words or phrases in a text relevant to a grade 4 topic or subject area. Ontario Curriculum: A1.1 compare social organization (e.g., social classes, general political structure, inherited privilege, the status of women) in . . . early societies A3.2 demonstrate the ability to extract information on daily life in a few early societies, . . . from visual evidence (e.g., art works such as paintings, sculptures, carvings, masks, mosaics, hide paintings, beadwork, quillwork, soapstone carvings; clothing; ceremonial dress; regalia; petroglyphs; monuments; rock/earth mounds; artefacts such as tools, household utensils, pottery, religious articles, weapons) A3.3 describe significant aspects of daily life in . . . early societies A3.6 identify and describe some of the major scientific and technological developments in the ancient and medieval world A3.9 describe some key reasons why different groups in a few early societies, . . . cooperated or came into conflict at different times (e.g., to explore; to expand territory; to make decisions, govern, and administer; to promote trade; to wage war or make peace; to acquire wealth, power, and control; to rebel; to spread religious beliefs and/or enforce the power of particular religious institutions; to protect spiritual beliefs, ceremonies and other cultural practices, and traditional lands)
The students should complete their art if they do not finish it during the class time and should post a picture on our class page. Then, they should add some comments in response to the other learners' work. Additionally, they should complete the writing prompts to reflect on the soldiers lives, personalities, and feelings.
Each learner will need art supplies like pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, glue, tape, etc. It will also be easier if the illustrations can be printed out prior to each class, although students may colour/edit them using a computer program or redraw them on paper. I will supply the readings and illustrations from my book (a $20 value).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I am able to give feedback and a report on each learner's progress, if requested.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class will include an age-appropriate discussion of war and death. Most of the illustrations are of soldiers' faces, but there are a few illustrations of fighting, including two with a wounded or dying soldier (not gory).
